I want to be as helpful as I can to people in need and in distress. I have a rather extensive history in psychiatric medicine and look forward to treat those with complex and problematic issues as well as people with less challenging complaints and issues. I want to help people move to increased self confidence and a more positive future. I am licensed in Connecticut and in Massachusetts. Unfortunately I cannot accept patients who live in other states.

Are you looking for a psychiatrist who is equally skilled and passionate in the arts of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology (prescribing medications)? My clinical style is engaging, interactive, and nonjudgmental. Medications are available when appropriate/helpful, but are just one of the tools available. I am also well-versed in talk therapy approaches when medications are not indicated/desirable. I look forward to your teaching me about the many different pieces that make you you, including looking at your medical health and social/family structures. I look forward to working together to find the right approach for you.
